What we've already achieved:
WoTTA helped organise a joint venture between EBC and 12 children from Ashley School to do a wildflower planting day in the flower beds at Cowey Sale Car Park on 8th May. Today the beds look amazing! #workingtogether #community!
In May 2017 WoTTA completed a survey of the hanging basket brackets on lampposts in Walton. Long story short, it turned out we were not getting the correct allocation of baskets (42) from EBC. WoTTA gave the council an updated list, including locations for new brackets, to meet our allocation. This is all at no cost to us. :) UPDATE: Burley's suppliers let them down and the Summer 2017 hanging baskets were late and of poor quality. The council are negotiating potential winter baskets to make up for this.
We met with Walton railway station staff to discuss improvements we could make together to the floral offering at the station. This included the idea of converting the central reservation into a bee sanctuary by top-soiling it and seeding with wildflowers, painting the station house on that platform in a cottage theme, putting a grass roof on the corrugated steel hut, getting two tiered planters on platform 1, hanging historical Walton photos in the waiting room and creating a noticeboard for community events in the station.
We are also still helping push forward the Access for All changes put forward for Walton which would see a bridge and lift access put in.
